Over Winter Break I fell in love with a little eagle family over on the Dick Pritchett website - a live Eagle Cam. Eagles have always been special to me, maybe because they have been every mascot in the 4 schools I have worked at, or maybe it's because of what they represent, or specific facts about them, but I fell head over heels in love with them....
It was a very powerful motivator this past week in my classroom. Students were trying to earn extra points in order to take a peek at the new eaglet. We watched as a class as momma fed her baby some fish, they made inferences as to where dad was at the moment and why baby needed to snuggle up close to the parents.
I wanted to share, just in case you didn't know about the website. I'm hoping they leave the cameras on in the coming weeks to watch baby grow up. If not, well there are other Eagle live cams out there. :)
I hope you have a wonderful night.
